AEW stars Matt and Jeff Hardy are “heading in a new direction” that could be “really unique”

During his podcast this week, Matt Hardy talked about the future of him and his brother Jeff in AEW. Matt said the following…

“I do think The Hardys are heading in a new direction. I think it is really unique for Jeff because I think you’re gonna see Jeff talk about and go into a territory that he’s never really explored before, and I think that’s gonna be really interesting, really intriguing, really good, entertaining TV.”

“Every time we do a comic con, any time we do any public signing, you were at WrestleCade, we signed for seven hours. People come through. Everywhere or four people that come through, someone is gonna say, ‘You were my childhood. Oh my god, thank you for making my childhood great. You are living legends, and you’re still killing it.’ We hear that so much, and I think we’ve just decided to apply that to the new direction we are taking our characters in. The most funny thing, the best thing is when the diehard fans who claim or feel they’re the smartest, and they get the ins and outs of the business or they know what’s going on more than anybody else does, or they have the correct idea, this is how the creative should go, Tony Khan should book it this way or Triple H should book it his way or whatever, those guys, when they react to stuff, and also it gets underneath their skin, that lets you know, you can still do your job, you can play a role, and you can still get the smartest of the smart fans, especially the ones who believe they’re smartest of the smart.”

“There’s a lot of people that do get it. But there’s even more people that are online that don’t necessarily get it, and they just think, ‘Oh my god, the heads on these guys.’ So it’s gonna be fun to play around with, the big-headed Hardys. Sometimes I refer to our direction as the big-headed Hardys.” (quotes courtesy of Colin Tessier)
